Tired of looking at the same, tired walls? The bathroom is often a neglected space during home improvements; if you’ve run out of budget but want a quick and cheap revamp, here are some ways to update your bathroom.
To create a co-ordinated look without spending a fortune, splash out on some matching bathroom accessories, such as toothbrush holders and soap dishes in coordinating styles. For extra luxury, add some towels and flannels in a complementary colour or pattern.
Take it to the floor
Updating the floor need not cost a fortune; remove that tired old vinyl and replace with an off-cut from your local floor-coverings store. Or buy some cheap vinyl tiles, which are available in a variety of vibrant colours and styles.
Calm down with some candles
Some strategically arranged candles can add a spa-like calmness to your bathroom, even when they’re not lit. Opt for subtle scents to get a feel-good aroma and inviting ambience.
Go for green
Plants are made for the bathroom — so many beautiful varieties love the moist environment and will thrive perfectly, while adding a sense of tranquility. Play about the levels — smaller on the windowsill or a shelf, larger on the floor or hanging from the ceiling.
Instead of storing your belongings away in a cupboard, create a feature of them. Hang natural baskets on the walls, filling them with soaps, brushes and shower gels. Add extra hooks for co-ordinating toiletries bags and towels.
Tap into a new look
A tired sink or bath can be revitalised with a new set of taps. Opt for something striking for extra wow, such as a matte finish or darker metal.
Pick a pattern
A carefully chosen pattern can add some interest to a bland bathroom. From toothbrush holders to towels, pick a variety of patterns that complement each other and add spark to their surroundings.
